...

And that wraps up the T20 series, folks! Not the kind of cricket we expected given this series is featuring two mercurial sides. Let's put our hopes on West Indies coming back stronger in the ODI series, and hope that we can get to see some thrillers in the upcoming games.

It was great providing the coverage. See you at future games. Good night. Take care!

...

Sarfraz Ahmed: "Very happy, credit to the boys,  they kept their cool in this heat. It was a complete team effort. We knew we shouldn't lose focus coming into this game. Bowlers deserve credit for restricting a good team on a good pitch. We didn't over-attack, we let happen that things that happened.

...

Carlos Brathwaite: " We could have come out better. We did not bat well in these games. Pakistan played well and are deserving winners. ODI series is coming up and hopefully we will perform better there. But us as a team to go back and come better. I do not review my performance as a player and a skipper. Tough times do not last but tough people do"

...

Imad Wasim: "I just work hard and keep things simple.I try to bowl it at the batsman's pads, and not offer them room. I pride myself at my batting."

...

Presentation time, folks!

Imad Wasim is named the name of the match for his 3 for 21 runs, and the man of the series for 9 wickets in this series.

...

And that's that! Punjabi songs are playing in the background as Pakistan register a famous clean sweep of the World T20 Champions! And what a champion like performance it has been by them led by the young captain Sarfraz Ahmed. Pakistan looked like a team with a plan, which they executed superbly. 

West Indies, on the other side, seemed as if they never turned up for the series. Barring for a few overs in the second T20, they never troubled the home side. Barring DJ Bravo, their batting looked totally out of sorts. The bowling was all over the place except Kesrick Williams' spirited display in this last game. Even the fielding unit displayed a lackadaisical performance.

They need to pull up their socks come the ODI and Test series.

...

15.1 Brathwaite to S Malik, SIX, what a way to finish the game. Malik just lofts the WI captain over long-on and Pakistan seal a 3-0 series win.

...

2 more needed. Can Malik finish in the next delivery?

...

14.6 S Narine to Babar Azam, no run, punched off the back foot and straight to the fielder at cover and they will have to wait for the next over.

...

14.5 S Narine to Babar Azam, 2 runs, dances down the track and drives it down to long-off for a single.

...

14.4 S Narine to S Malik, 1 run, with a single to deep point, Malik brings up Pakistan's 100 and they are on hit away now.

...

14.3 S Narine to S Malik, no run, Malik is beaten for pace and edges one to short third man.

...

14.2 S Narine to Babar Azam, 1 run, that was slightly short and hit straight to the fielder at cover but they pick up a single anyway.

...

14.1 S Narine to S Malik, 1 run, punched off the back foot for a single.

...

That was a big over for Pakistan. They now need just 7 to register a famous clean sweep against the current World T20 Champions.

And what a first series as captain for Sarfraz Ahmed. Credit must go to him for being able to lead so beautifully only in his first series.

...

13.6 DJ Bravo to S Malik, 1 run, yorker on the pads and flicked towards deep midwicket for a single that will keep Malik on strike.

...

13.5 DJ Bravo to S Malik, FOUR, 141 KMPH (EXPRESS PACE FROM BRAVO). Malik danced down the tracked and just lofted it over Bravo's head for a boundary and Bravo showing why he bowls so many slower balls.

...

13.4 DJ Bravo to S Malik, FOUR, full toss on the pads and Malik is the one who is smiling this time as he brings up the fifty partnership.

...

13.3 DJ Bravo to S Malik, no run, what can you do when the ball doesn't even come on to the bat. 97 KMPH. THAT IS SLOWER THAN MOST SPINNERS. Perhaps that's why Bravo has a chuckle.

...

13.2 DJ Bravo to S Malik, no run, Bravo's bag of tricks pulled out again. Bravo's very own in-dipping yorker that was slightly wide and well dug out by Malik.

...

13.1 DJ Bravo to S Malik, 2 runs, a faster bouncer from Bravo and Malik gets on top of it to pick up a couple to deep mid-wicket.

...

Smart batting by these two. Without hitting boundaries, they are managing to strike at a 100 by just rotating the strike.


DJ to finish his spell

...

12.6 S Narine to S Malik, 1 run, good hit from Malik who dances down the track but is still just a single.

...

12.5 S Narine to Babar Azam, 1 run, another single from Azam and that brings Malik on stirke.

...

12.4 S Narine to S Malik, 1 run, this time Malik diverts it to the fielder's right and gets off strike.

...

12.3 S Narine to S Malik, no run, tries to guide it past short third-man on the off-side off a ball that isn't very short but only finds the fielder.

...

12.2 S Narine to S Malik, no run, on the pads and Malik can't quite get it away.

...

12.1 S Narine to Babar Azam, 1 run, slightly wide and that is pushed into the off-side for a single.

...

Narine, again. This game should be over in another 10 minutes.

...

11.6 DJ Bravo to Babar Azam, 1 run, wrong line once again and that is clipped towards fine leg for a single that will keep Azam on strike.

...

11.5 DJ Bravo to Babar Azam, FOUR, so this is WHY BRAVO doesn't bowl FAST. 137 KMPH and a proper bouncer too but that was a poorly directed short ball and that races to the fine leg boundary.

...

11.4 DJ Bravo to Babar Azam, 2 runs, fuller but unsurprisingly slower from Bravo and it is driven firmly past cover for a single.

...

11.3 DJ Bravo to S Malik, 1 run, ANOTHER FAST (relatively) shortish ball which is pulled towards deep square-leg for a single.

...

11.2 DJ Bravo to Babar Azam, 1 run, after nearly giving the commentator a heart attack, Bravo reverts to type with a slower bumper which is guided to third man.

...

11.1 DJ Bravo to S Malik, 1 run, WHAT WAS THAT. A ball over 130 KMPH from BRAVO. Unfortunately that was short and on the hips and easily worked for a single.

...

If Pakistan win, this will be their first clean sweep of a three match T20 series. If WI lose, it'll be the first time they get white washed in a three match T20 series.

DJ comes in to bowl another.

...

10.6 S Narine to S Malik, 1 run, flicked off the hips into the gap between square leg and mid-wicket for a single.

...

10.5 S Narine to S Malik, no run, Narine follows the batsman and Malik doesn't read it at all and just misses it completely.

...

10.4 S Narine to Babar Azam, 1 run, deftly guided wide of point for a single.

...

10.3 S Narine to Babar Azam, 2 runs, that was driven firmly past cover and another easy two for Azam.

...

10.2 S Narine to Babar Azam, 2 runs, a misfield at fine-leg means Pakistan pick up a couple and continue their inevitable march to victory.

...

10.1 S Narine to S Malik, 1 run, short but angling in and Malik does well to cut that to deep point.

...

It's been a walk in the park for Pakistan till now. Barring Williams who's given his everything in his spell, the rest of the bowlers have looked highly ineffective.


Narine, again. Can he work his magic?

...

9.6 DJ Bravo to Babar Azam, no run, defended towards point and that ends Bravo's bag of tricks over.

...

9.5 DJ Bravo to S Malik, 1 run, slightly faster short ball this time but not short enough to trouble Malik who swivels and pulls it to fine-leg where some excellent fielding from Taylor keeps it to one.

...

9.4 DJ Bravo to S Malik, no run, next up from the bag is the in-dipping slower yorker outside off, which is dug out by Malik to point.

...

9.3 DJ Bravo to Babar Azam, 1 run, Bravo dips into his bag of tricks and pulls out a slower bouncer which Azam just gets on top of it to find fine leg for a single.

...

9.2 DJ Bravo to S Malik, 1 run, faster from Bravo but on the pads and Malik elegantly clips that to deep mid-wicket for a single. He wants two but settles for one.

...

9.1 DJ Bravo to Babar Azam, 1 run, absolutely no pace provided by Bravo but Azam just guides that to third man with a late cut for one.

DJ comes in to bowl, with Pakistan needing 43 in 11 overs.

...

West Indies have been nothing like the team they were in the T20 World Cup earlier this year. They have been shoddy with the bat, wayward with the ball and lackluster on the field.
